Thoughts of a summer holiday may automatically conjure images of a 2-week, pool-side package deal but can a caravan or motorhome offer an alternative to the all-inclusive deals?

Showing how our leisure vehicles are truly built for four seasons of touring, Bailey Snow Season has been running all winter.

Part 1 of my #BaileySnowSeason blog dealt with last-minute dry slope lessons, YouTube tutorials, a 1000-mile trip to Austria and a warm and comfy Bailey motorhome where I could close the door on the terrifying prospect of propelling myself down a snow-covered mountain the following day.

“There’s something so romantic about it”.  I’m in the pub after a post-Christmas round of golf and we’re discussing plans for 2016.  Everyone is under the age of 40 and we’re discussing motorhomes.
